Angels Nectar Islay Rioja Cask, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
Founded by Robert Ransom (ex-Glenfarclas) this independent bottling from Highfern is a blend of Highland and Speyside malts. The name is in reference to the ‘Angel’s Share’, an attempt to retain all the liquid lost to the heavens. Here we have an unnamed Islay malt, aged for 7 years in a Rioja wine cask.
